Android Boosts HTC Q2 Earnings

Thanks to phones like the Droid Incredible, EVO 4G, and Nexus One, Taiwanese handset maker HTC just announced a fantastic second quarter. Sales are up 58 percent year-to-year with net profit growing 33 percent over the same time frame. Of course HTC still uses Windows Mobile for some of their phones but everyone knows that Android is the hot commodity right now in the wireless industry.

Don’t look for things to slow down either as the handset maker expects “strong momentum” going into the second half of the year. HTC plans to launch another round of phones starting in the third quarter with Android presumably out front. HTC forecasts handset shipments to hit 20 million units this year, up from 12 million last year.
